About Renoites

Renoites is a local podcast for the people of Reno, Nevada. My name is Conor McQuivey and each week I talk to somebody in Reno who is doing interesting or important work in our city. They may be an expert on something that I'm curious about, advocating for an important cause, or otherwise just want to share their knowledge and experience on topics of importance to their neighbors here in Northern Nevada. My goal is for this show to be a major source of substantive discussion for the Reno/Sparks area, with every (I'll accept *almost* every) local podcast listener at least tuning in now and then for the topics of specific interest to them.

The first season ran in 2021 for 32 weeks in a row (with one exception, I missed one on vacation!). I spoke at length with local elected officials like Councilman Devon Reese and Sparks Mayor Ed Lawson.

With arts and culture leaders like Tia Flores from Sierra Arts Foundation and Oliver X of Artown.

With vital community organizations like Black Wall Street and the Northern Nevada International Center.

I also covered several social issues, like conversion therapy with Yvette Cantu Schneider from the Netflix documentary "Pray Away" and the fat acceptance movement with Emily Tresichel from CurveNV. And so many more incredibly guests I can't possibly thank enough.

In 2022, I am hoping to do 30 episodes divided into 3 10-episode seasons. I have just finished the first season of 2022 and am already excited about beginning work on the next. I'm also hoping to work on additional local community-oriented podcast projects as time and my budget allow.

That's where you come in! So far, Renoites has been entirely self funded, with some occasional financial support from listeners and marketing cross-promotion with local businesses. I am very grateful to my friends Vickie Musni of DJ Trivia Nevada and to Bob Conrad of This is Reno for always being supportive and helping get the show off the ground.

I would love for Renoites to become a financially sustainable project, and one that can grow. Please consider becoming a patron of this work. Your contribution will help me in my mission to foster greater communication, information-sharing, story-telling and civic engagement in our dynamic and fascinating community. I'm endlessly grateful to all my listeners, guests, and everyone who has supported me in this incredibly rewarding project so far, and those who will help sustain it going forward. Thank you!
